Boxycharm January 2017

Welcome back to my blog, or if you are new here, I’m so excited you stopped by.  I hope you stay a while, laugh a little and maybe even like, comment and subscribe so you don’t miss out on future posts/vlogs & utter randomness.

Today’s post is about the January 2017 Boxycharm subscription box.  If you haven’t been following me for too long you may have missed the post where I reviewed all of the beauty subscription bags/boxes I’ve tried.

Check that out here

If you are not familiar, Boxycharm is a monthly beauty box subscription in which you will receive 4 to 5 FULL SIZE beauty items instead of the delux mini or sample sizes you typically receive in the many other subscriptions.  The items are mostly make up related but can also include skincare and beauty tools, etc.  Not only are the items full size but the box has a minimum value of at least $100+ and the brands are a mixture of new brands to established brands you may already recognize.  The total cost is $21 per month and that includes shipping and you can cancel at any time.  I have been subscribed for 7 months and have not regretted it!  I’ve included a link so you can check it out and subscribe, I promise you won’t be disappointed.

So, let’s talk about what was in this months box.  I have not tried anything out yet as I just got the box in the mail last night,  but here are my thoughts…


Vintage Highlighter Double – Chocolate Diamond & Rose Quartz  – $35 value – I am so excited to try the Vintage Highlighter Double.  I already have one of their highlighters in Rose Gold that is so beautiful on the skin so I’m hoping these duo colors will be just as amazing.


Pur Mineral Glow Bronzing Powder – $25 value  – Pur is a brand I know and love and I’ve never tried their bronzers before so I’m super happy about that being in the box this month.  I also just hit pan on my ride or die bronzer Physcians Formula Butter Bronzer so that was pretty good timing.


So Susan Fan Brush – $18.95 value – I was not overly excited about the fan brush as I already have an E.L.F. one that I love, however this brush feels like such a good quality brush, much better feeling that the ones i currently have, so I will give it a shot.  Really you can never have enough make up brushes right?!


Gorge Amazing Konjac Sponge – $18 value – This item couldn’t have come at a better time because I just had to trash the konjac sponge I was using because it was so old.

NOTE: I can’t verify the info or value of this item at the moment as their website says they are under new management and there are tons of recent customer complaints/negative reviews stating they were charged for products that they didn’t receive and that they have received no answer from customer service for resolution or refund… (hmmm, even if I love this konjac sponge I will NOT be buying anything from them as that is already sending up red flags to me as a consumer but I’ll try it out since it came in this months box)


English Laundry Pour Femme Deluxe Roller Ball  – $25 value  – I was a little unhappy at first to see a roller ball perfume in the box because I was so worried it was going to be a fragrance that I wouldn’t love as I’m very particular when it comes to perfumes and fragrance.  Surprisingly I love the scent!  I’m packing it in my gym bag today and am planning to try it out since I will be showering & getting ready at the gym this evening.  (That process is a whole blog entry by itself but I digress)

NOTE: I can’t find the option to buy this roller ball in this particular fragrance by itself but it is a part of a $45 roller ball set that is available for purchase on their website.

Now on to the total value of this months box…

Basically according to my research and the product info card that comes in each box, this box has a total value of $121.95 worth of beauty products that I only paid $21 for!  I feel that is a total steal deal and after using the products I will really know if I love or hate them.  I have found in the past when you get a sample size or delux mini size that there isn’t enough product for you to try to really know if you love or hate it and if it works for you.

Once again Boxycharm didn’t disappoint.  I have yet to have a month where I was completely unsatisfied with the box.  Maybe there have been a couple of items here or there that I already had or knew wouldn’t work for me but that’s true of any subscription.  So for month 7 I am still satisfied and have no plans to cancel by subscription anytime soon.

So have you tried Boxycharm yet?  If you have, what do you think of it?  Have you been happy with what you have received and the value?  If not, why?  Fill me in!  Comment below or leave a link to your review posts.

Until next time,

Glossybox April 2016

Maybe you are tired of seeing my posts about beauty boxes this week. It’s cool. I get it. But the middle of the month just happens to be the time when all my beauty bags/boxes typically arrive. So I’m going to be posting my thoughts as they arrive.  So deal with it. 

Yesterday I received the April 2016 Glossybox. I have only had a subscription for a short time as in this is only my 2nd box I’ve ever received. It’s $21 a month and is filled with 5 delux size sample and/or full size beauty items. It seems that GB gives you more full size items than other subscriptions so far but it’s only been two months so maybe that won’t continue. We will wait and see.  

So here is my box for the month:  

The first months box was packaged perfectly with a perfectly tied black bow around the tissue paper. This month it looked like they threw my stuff in the box and forgot to tie it up and seal the paper with the usual Glossybox decal they typically use. But that is not a deal breaker for me. I just really enjoyed the presentation of the first months box and kind of expected it going forward. I’m interested to see how it will be next month. That is just a minor detail though and did not affect the quality of the box or the items I received. 

On to what was in the box…

My box included:

Unani Dermo Defense Face Mask (3.4oz Full Size) value of $18

Leighton Denny Expert Nails Nail Polish in the color Pillow Talk. (.4 oz Full Size) value of $19

Alterna Haircare Cavier Cc Cream Extra Hold (.85oz sample size) Full Size = $25 (est. value of $8.50)

Studio 10 Brow Lift Perfecting Liner (Full Size) value of $20

Biossance The Nourisher Precious Rose Face Oil (1 oz) Full Size = $72 (est. value of $10)

So basically I paid $21 (includes shipping) for $75 worth of products. Not too bad. I never would have tried any of these brands and haven’t heard of them actually until receiving this box this month. 

Another plus about the box this month is that three of my five items were full size. I am actually super excited about what I received as well. 

My brief thoughts on the products:

I’ve already tried the eyebrow pencil and love it. I’m very excited to try the face oil and hope it doesn’t break me out. Not sure how I feel about the hair CC cream but willing to give it a try. The nail polish is a beautiful color but I haven’t tried it yet since my nails are painted the purple color I received from my Ipsy bag this month currently so thoughts on that will be posted later. 

I think I’m the most excited about the face mask. It smells amazing but it actually smells pretty strong considering its for sensitive skin. So we will see how it goes. Fingers crossed my skin reacts well to it. 

 So far I’d say this months box is another win and I will continue my subscription for a little while longer.  April has been a good beauty bag/box subscription month so far!
